Taking an oath that one will fast for each time one commits a particular sin

Q: Once I made an oath that every time I commit a particular sin (such as watching porn) I will fasting a day. It is really hard for me to control myself and unfortunately I broke the oath several times. Do I need to pay one kaffara or multiple kaffara? Or I need to fast as many times as I broke the oath?

A: You need to fast as many times as you broke the oath.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
